Well, when I started class this morning, I was still wondering how I could integrate using handhelds into my band classroom. I found very quickly that the "participate" program would work wonderfully in my beginner class. I can use it to assess students during their playing tests and keep an accurate listing of mistakes for each student. This list can then be hot sync'd to my computer and be printed to be put into my gradebook as well as being downloaded to GradeQuick and EdLine.
It would take a little bit of time to set up the program, but the time it would save in the classroom would be more than minimal. I could see myself actually using this in the classroom and sharing with my fellow music teachers to help keep accurate scoring of playing tests. One of the hardest things to do when assessing numerous (50+) students at a given time is to keep accurate and consistent records. This program would allow me as a teacher to better serve my students by being more accruate and consistent.
